Flowers for the wedding can make the most difference in the mood you and your bride are trying to convey to the participants. All colors and arrangements have their own suggestive nuances. Even in a dull or common setting, flowers can be used to brighten up, liven, and cheer the drab environs.
- Once you've decided on opting for flowers, there are some wise tips that are important to consider – especially for frugal grooms and prudent brides!
- It's not easy to move the flowers from the wedding to the reception because transporting large arrangements is, in the words of a professional, "cumbersome and messy."
- Carnations are really cheap, but some people are put off by them. However, in tight bunches and pretty combinations, they can be magnificent.
- Consider holding the reception in an environment that is already decorated with flower displays or that have gardens that have colorful arrangements
- Avoid a February marriage because Valentine's Day causes the cost of flowers to rise a lot.
- Buy large (or modest) potted plants such as palms and ficus instead of purchasing bulky flower arrangements. They will live longer and can be given as presents at the end of the ceremony.
- Christmas and Easter are ideal times to hold a wedding because the church will be pre-decorated, and the mood will be festive and celebratory.
